Gurtch, the second shot is fantastic. Really great composition, light and tonality.

On the other hand, I have to say that I think the first shot is terrible. Not the scene itself, but the postprocessing makes it look like it was shot with an iPhone.

I don't say this to be rude, but when I see how good you really are (#2177), I just cannot understand why you did what you did to the other one (#2176).

Pentax 645D, 120mm f4A Macro. Monopod, f13. Converted to B&W with Silver Efex Pro, Plus X film, Orange filter emulation. Edges and corners burned in same as my darkroom prints. This image will go to 24"x32" with no problem.

That is a good shot. Simple and effective.
You might want to consider forgetting the HDR or other processing of the first shot...for obvious reasons.

Cheers,

Luc

Last Saturday I was swimming for 50 minutes at the beach from which you can see the mountains.
Last Sunday I was in plenty of snow on the mountains from which you can see the beach...


Mostly family shots, but just to show how much snow is still there:

Caltar-N 115/6.8 F32 TMY-2 Diafine



Caltar-N 210/5.6 F5.6 TMY-2 Diafine


The cross at the top right is actually my young cousin...

So that is what you look like - no long beard a la Ansel Adam
Same here in BC, North Vancouver's mountain still have snow that you can perfectly see while swimming at the beach and all the bears are way down in the valleys and twons
Tomorrow I am planning to go and see how much snow is still up there.

Cheers,

Luc

Some of your shots put me to shame. here is my noble effort. I have had my 645D back for only a few days now, so having to get used to it again. I took it to Cardiff on the train and generally had a bit of a play around. One shot is with the train speeding past local trees, and the other is of one of Cardiff's famous arcades, Castle Arcade. It was a dreary day which meant I had to up the ISO to 800 (no tripod with me) Both shot with FA 33-55

Really nice foreground on all three. On my monitor (calibrated) the sky come out extremely vivid which feels a little bit too much of a contrast. Would not mind seeing the pic larger, they only show very small (using Firefox).

Cheers,

Luc

Thank you - experimental is definitely the word - I was the first one to be surprise that it worked

Cheers,

Wow. How did you do that, Luc? Women's face is sharp - cousin, too? Was it shot with a large-format camera?

I used a 4x5 camera. Front standard tilted forward toward background and a little bit of back standard tilted away from background in order to try to get the plane of focus to pick-up both my wife's face and my cousin without enough clarity. I checked with loupe until I had both in focus but quite frankly I still did not expected it to work on the final picture.

Cheers,

Luc


Now just so that Tuco does not have the exclusivity - here are pictures of me with the 4x5. I had no pictures of myself for years and then suddenly tons of them

Nice moustache, Luc!
...Not sure that I have any photos of myself that are worth posting at this stage.
